Take a look at the parts I'm specing for my new rig in the "Need spec input for new rig- triple monitor!" thread. I'm up to $1900 not including case, lighting, monitor, KB and mouse, or optical drive(s), but you could downgrade a few of the options (single video card, 2GB ram instead of 4, 1 HD instead of a RAID) and have enough left to grab a decent flat panel and other bits.

The only thing i'd say is make sure u get an 965P-DS3 mobo, E6600 CPU, and a 8800 GTX graphics card. Those parts are widely viewed as 'pretty dang kwl'

Im building a system, but im trying to keep it under 1800. and that's AU dollars! for $2000 US....wow, u will whoop *** when u get ur new build.
